The Tenderness Of The Sky

Standard

*

it’s the tenderness
of the sky
laying his shroud

over me
in the morning that
opens my eyes

to gratitude
glimpses of love
peeking through

as little drops left

after the rain
on the heads
of grass blades

Now I Lay Me Down…

Standard

*

it is right by the side
of the road the Cathedral
In The Pines Cemetery

as if you could just roll
off the side of the road
dead and ready to lay

where there are no fences
but some more noise to
endure or is it a reminder

when the sun hides
at sunset behind red
blood colored clouds

A Hint Of Poetry

Standard

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

Description of a Transition – Closing of the California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

poetry is
the description
of a transition

the details

of a voyage
into new unknown
lands laying

beside us all along

An Upside Down World

Standard

*

tonight
the moon is full

emptied from a thousand
engagements I lay in hot
water maybe illuminated

from the sky is the silence
repose approaching
hidden from light

an upside down world
a somersault and a wriggle to

find myself wondering star under
inside some lights I turn off before
the thoughts – then the eyes

slightly vibrating
weightless in the space
I found within

On Being From The California Notebooks 2016

Standard

*

when my words
surfacing out of
poetry define
who am I
I cry

I also
rejoice and
stand still as
if suspended
all at the same
exact

time holding
that tiny particle
of truth inside me
that shining in spite
of me

On Poetry From The California Notebooks 2016

Standard

*

it seems some days
that the sun moves
at a faster speed

it raises for a kiss
as I get a cup of coffee
and let the cat out

I see them playing
together in the shiny
grass birds may

join too as I give
shape to new poetry
typing away

suddenly it taps
on the backyard for
a sad goodbye

as I sit speechless

Dreams From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

showering
under the full moon
each drop a miniature

globe satellite revolving
my breath slowing
with each step

in the garden
eyelids lowering
under the rays

reflecting

Desert Trip

Standard

*

November 1st early
morning past sunrise
I’m out in the middle
of the deserted road

I stop to savor the
moment under a sturdy
blue sky half moon
suspended late up there

my eyes running up to
the lengths of the tall
palm trees where only
a bird or two greet me

I’ve got a couple of hours
a couple of water bottles and
some mountains to follow here’s
peace before my Sunday starts

On Dreams

Standard

I was trying to
dilate a dream

connecting deep
taking time

the early afternoon
was suddenly dark

fingers sinking
into it wrenching

walking the mind
dumbfound rounds

and rounds
sleepwalker

on a pitfall
a dive into

nothingness
an upside down
